Pamper sensitive skin

I have sensitive skin. Even though I love hot weather, it can make my skin feel prickly at times. Organix-South Naked Organix, a new line of unscented organic soaps and body butter, is a luxurious solution. This all-organic skin care line is perfect for anyone who reacts badly to fragrance or additives, but still craves luxury.

 
There are four delicious soap and body butter combos to pamper skin:
 
Sea Buckthorn oil is now used in variety of beauty lines. Sea Buckthorn – the fruit of the shrub of the same name — was recently praised by Dr. Oz for its many health benefits. It is rich in essential fatty acids, especially the elusive Omega 7.
 
Argan is the golden beauty oil of Morocco. It is a rich source of essential fatty acids and Vitamin E. Argan oil has a miraculous rejuvenating effect on hair and skin.
 
Neem is often called the “Village Pharmacy” by traditional Indian Ayurvedic practitioners. Neem oil is prized for its high antioxidant content. It is soothing and healing for a variety of common skin conditions. It is also very moisturizing.
 
Tamanu oil from Polynesia contains Callophylsäure acid, which is
anti-inflammatory and very beneficial for skin conditions such as for acne, eczema, as well as psoriasis.
 
I tried the Tamanu oil soap and body butter combo. I found it very soothing to my skin, even a small patch that was irritated by the heat. I love the way the body butter melts into my skin and leaves it feeling so soft.  You need only a very small amount to leave skin feeling like silk.
 
According to cosmetic chemist Autumn Blum founder of Organix-South, “Naked Organix offers double support for the skin. The soaps are super-fatted and gently cleanse the dermis without stripping important oils. Follow that with massaging or rubbing a body butter into your skin after bathing which not only increases circulation, but leaves the skin feeling softer, more supple and radiantly alive.  Try Naked Organix & feel better naked.”

Potent and purely organic

Darlings, if you are one of the many who would like to go organic with your beauty regime, but find it pricy, try Kiss My Face. This line of natural organic skin care has been around for years, and it keeps getting better. The new line, Potent and Pure, combines the latest scientific research to address skin concerns from acne to ageing with botanicals, minerals, and vitamins. It uses the highest-quality ingredients and offers effective products at a fabulous price.

 
We tried and liked Potent and Pure Organic Exfoliating Cleanser. It is 82 percent organic. The cleanser contains a blend of lemon grass oil, to calm, and green tea anti-oxidant, to repair. It also has natural fruit alpha hydroxyl acids for exfoliation. It’s good value at $15 for good-sized container.
 
Pure and Potent Eyewitness Repair Crème is 83 percent organic. We love this formula of essential fatty acids, including Eye Bright Extract, Alpha Lipoid Acid, Vitamins A, C and E, and soothing shea butter. This eye cream does it all as it plumps and firms. It’s a true bargain for $19. You can find Kiss My Face Pure and Potent at better drugstores and health food stores.

Chocolate kisses

If you are a natural beauty who prefers balm to gloss, Navitas Naturals Cacao Lip Balm is a treat you’ll want to try. This antioxidant-rich lip moisturizer is made from pure, cold-pressed oil from the cacao bean. It’s all organic too! The rich formula includes sunflower oil, beeswax, raw cacao butter, jojoba oil, rosemary extract, calendula and Vitamin E. The balm has a rich dark chocolate aroma and subtle cocoa taste. This soothing little treat is about $4 at Whole Foods, health food stores, and online at www.navitasnaturals.com. These would also make terrific stocking stuffers for children and skiers, if you have started your holiday shipping!

Naturally Beautiful

 Eden Home is the creation of Alexandra Smith and Rachel Sparwasser. They are two moms building their own niche in the new green economy. They offer many “green-organic life style products. Eden Home Skincare is their exclusive line organic, botanical beauty products. All the elegantly-packaged products are free from irritating parabens, urea, and synthetics.

 
What we love about Eden Home, and demand from all the organic products that we recommend, is that they are also effective. They have included ingredients that are proven to make skin beautiful: Vitamins E, C, and A, as well as Shea butter, lactic acid, almond oil, among others. The preservatives used are food grade. The products are moderately priced ranging from $25 to $54 USD. As of now they only ship within the U.S., but we hope they start shipping to Canada, too. Please, let them know if this policy frustrates you. We need to encourage all unique purveyors to provide cross-border shipping. DolceDolce and our readers have been influential in the past getting other companies to ship to both countries.
